Hormone Replacement Therapy of No Help to Elderly Women at Disease Risk: Study
The Journal of the American Medical Association's (JAMA) latest issue has got a new study published in it. The research claimed that the hormone replacement therapy did not benefit women by averting their illness.
Rather, the women's risks of getting a disease were surged as a result of the therapy.
The Women's Health Initiative (WHI) study's follow-up has been conducted for around two decades. The same could go longer, but health concerns caused a halt in the same.
The report said that the hormone replacement therapy could prove helpful in managing women's menopause symptoms. But, a chronic disease was not impacted by the same.
The aim of the study was to find out if the therapy had the potential to bring a reduction in the risk of diseases in older women. Since, women of this age group are at higher risks of cancer and osteoporosis, or other illnesses, as compared to their younger counterparts.
The team said that the idea was that estrogen could have a high effect on the body of a woman. But, the truth was contrary to the belief.
In the belief of the researchers, "Findings from the intervention and extended post-intervention follow-up of the two WHI hormone therapy trials do not support use of this therapy for chronic disease prevention".
